HBR Workshops
Taleyna Fletcher

Would you like to learn how to “read” old buildings? The Wisbech High Street Project is offering FREE workshops led by a professional archaeologist for beginners or those wanting to learn more about how to record historic buildings.

Sessions will be held in Wisbech town centre and led by an archaeologist from Archaeological Project Services (APS) who successfully delivered our brilliant “Big Dig” in 2018.

There are two sessions available to choose from:

  •  Beginners: The first session will be on Saturday 8th June between 10am and 12pm. This session will look at the resources used by archaeologists to date buildings such as old photographs and maps. Using Wisbech High Street as a case study, the group will look at different architectural styles and features and look for clues in the buildings which signify change and alterations.
  • Advance: The second session on Saturday 15th June will be more in depth and will last from 10am to 4pm. We will be looking at a specific historic building in Wisbech and will learn how archaeologists approach recording of the interior and exterior of a building.  Looking at architectural features and details, you will learn the methods archaeologists use to record a building, such as photography, measured recording and creating a written record as well as the historical resources they use in addition to looking at the fabric of the building.

Places on workshops are limited and booking is essential. To secure a place or if you have any questions, please contact Taleyna Fletcher, Townscape Heritage Officer on 01354 622210 or email tfletcher@fenland.gov.uk
